I'm trying to set the windows key as the meta modifier on Ubuntu 17.10, so that I can use OSX style keyboard layout on the IntelliJ editor.
When ever I go to the gnome-tweak-tool application, in the "Keyboard & Mouse" > "Additional Layout Options" > "Alt/Win key behavior", and select "Meta is mapped to Win keys", I should expect that I can now create a shortcut using the Win key + a letter and IntelliJ would identify it as Meta + the letter.
But no matter the option I select in the "Alt/Win key behavior" menu, it detects the input as the Win key as "Super".
How can I map the Win Key to Meta?
It seems that I have the correct menu option, it's just not working as intended.
The output for the following commands:
gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources sources [('xkb', 'us+dvorak')] gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.input-sources xkb-options ['altwin:meta_win']
After failing around for a while I have given up on 17.10 and reinstalled 17.04.
Works fine on 17.04
